Flexibility for the Modern Life
Our CSA program adjusts with you. Unlike a traditional farm membership where you commit to the entire year upfront, our memberships are subscriptions, billed weekly so that you only have to pay for the weeks that work for you.
If you need to skip any week, for any reason, you can simply log into the only portal and click the button to skip. You can skip well in advance, so that if you know you'll be away for a bit, you can easily pre-skip those deliveries.
New for 2022: Donating your Share to Charity
In addition to skipping any week, you can choose to instead donate your share to The People's CSA and your share that week will go to someone in our region in need of access to fresh produce.
At the end of the year, you'll receive a report of all of your charitable contributions for tax purposes.

We deliver to locations throughout northern Virginia. We deliver to different regions on different days. To find your region, select to view the map below and enter your address. Or, if we are not currently delivering to your location and you are interested, please reach out to us and we can see if we can make a change to our routes.
Every Artemisia Membership is a weekly home delivery. On your delivery day, you put out a cooler with ice packs and we will fill it with your weekly veggies and any add-ons you've purchased from the Marketplace. If you're an Artemisia Rundle member, you'll also get that week's featured wine or cocktail ingredient. Rundle members also get a $10 weekly credit on the add-on Marketplace.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will my share be delivered?
We deliver to different regions on different days. To see when your delivery day is, take a look at our delivery map.
On your delivery day, you'll get an email notification with your delivery's ETA. This is live updated as we deliver, so if we hit traffic or are running early, it will update as we move through the day.
Once your share has been delivered, you'll get an email notification for that too.
Do I need to be home for my delivery?
For deliveries of fresh produce, you do not have to be home for your delivery. However, you must have a cooler with frozen ice packs ready to receive your delivery, and we strongly recommend that your items be moved into refrigeration within one hour of delivery.
We cannot be held accountable for any item left unattended for more than one hour or if a cooler with ice packs is not put out. For a point of reference, baby lettuces if placed in a hot cooler or left out in the sun will wilt within 15 min.
If your subscription or order includes alcohol, you must legally be present at the time of the delivery, however we do maintain a no-contact-required delivery, so leaving a cooler out for us is perfectly acceptable.
If you do not expect that you can reliably be home on your delivery day, please do not select that day for delivery. We do not want any produce to go to waste.
When will my card be billed? When does my subscription renew?
Signing up for any Membership with Artemisia an ongoing subscription.
Unlike a traditional CSA, we will not charge for a full season's deliveries all at once. Instead, we bill on the Saturday before your delivery day. This allows for you to skip a week whenever you need to, and not be charged.
Your Membership with Artemisia will recur automatically until the end of the season (early December) or until cancelled.
We always bill on Saturday around 12:00am, regardless of your scheduled delivery day. If you need to skip or make changes to your membership, be sure to skip by the Friday prior to your next scheduled delivery.
For more details, view our Subscription Policy.
Is an Artemisia Membership year-round?
Any membership with Artemisia runs from early spring to the beginning of winter. You can begin whenever you like in the season, and skip any delivery as needed.
For the 2022 growing season, we will deliver from April 3 to December 13.
Can I pickup at the farm?
We do not offer pickups at the farm.
With growing sites in multiple locations and being a crew of two, we cannot reliably be present to receive guests on any day and we do not have a secure refrigerated place for self-service.
